Ashes - D. H. Lawrence

Five years after the death of English writer David Herbert Lawrence (1885-1930), his widow Frieda Lawrence decided that the remains of her husband, who was buried in France, are dug up and cremated so that they can be moved and rest in Taos, New Mexico – according to Lawrence’s wish before he died.

She assigned that job to her new lover, Angelo Ravagli. Frieda's new companion did what his loved one asked of him.

However, several years later, Ravagli admitted that he felt very uncomfortable carrying Lawrence’s urn from Europe so he sold his ashes already in France.

Whose ashes did he brought to New Mexico?

He had no idea. He bought the urn with someone’s ashes in New York.
